What Is Eyelid Surgery?

While your eyes are one of the first features people notice about you, they are also one of the first facial features where the signs of age begin to show. The common concerns of sagging or puffy eyelids, bags under the eyes, and other eyelid changes can be effectively addressed with eyelid surgery. We offer both upper and lower eyelid surgery to patients in Toronto and worldwide.

In addition to achieving a more youthful, refreshed appearance, eyelid surgery can also offer functional benefits, enabling you to see more clearly by tightening and lifting sagging or drooping eyelids that reduce your field of vision. If you’d like to learn more about eyelid surgery and its benefits, please contact Studio Plastic Surgery in Toronto to schedule your consultation.

Who Is a Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery is generally ideal for patients experiencing some or all of the following concerns:

  • Puffy eyelids
  • Drooping, sagging eyelids
  • Hooded eyelids
  • Limited vision from drooping eyelids
  • Bags or dark circles under the eyes

Eyelid surgery can do more than achieve a more youthful appearance; it can help resolve a tired or irritated appearance caused by sagging eyelid skin. Your surgeon will examine the skin around your eyes and discuss your concerns and aesthetic goals. From there, he will help you decide on the right treatment option for you and create a surgical plan based on your unique physical characteristics and needs. Generally, ideal candidates for eyelid surgery meet the following qualifications:

  • Are generally in good health
  • Have no serious eye conditions or medical concerns
  • Do not smoke or are willing to quit smoking during the surgical period 
  • Have realistic expectations about what eyelid surgery can achieve

What Are the Benefits of Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery provides many benefits for patients who would like to address drooping eyelids, sagging skin, or decreased field of vision.  Benefits include the following:

  • Reduced eye bags and puffiness
  • Reduced skin rubbing and irritation 
  • Reduced dark circles under the eyes
  • Increased line of sight 
  • Fewer fine lines 
  • A more rested, refreshed appearance
  • A fuller under-eye area 
  • Lifted, younger-looking skin around the eyes and eyelids

The Eyelid Surgery Procedure

Your surgeon will explain what you can expect during the procedure as part of your preoperative consultation, explaining the procedure technique to you in detail. On the day of your surgery, your surgeon will begin your procedure with careful incisions. Once healed, these incisions heal well and are easily concealed by your body’s natural contours.

Your surgeon will use the incisions to remove excess fat, tighten the skin to address any sagging or drooping that may be present, and achieve a youthful, refreshed appearance. After spending a short amount of time in our comfortable recovery area, you’ll be ready to head home with a family member or friend and begin the healing process.

Cost of Eyelid Surgery

At Studio Plastic Surgery, the cost of Blepharoplasty procedures varies depending on the specific area being addressed. For Upper Blepharoplasty, starting at $5,500, excess skin and fat are removed from the upper eyelids to rejuvenate and enhance the appearance of the eyes. Meanwhile, Lower Blepharoplasty, starting at $6,550, targets under-eye bags and excess skin, helping to restore a more youthful and refreshed look. These prices include various components such as the surgeon's fee, facility charges, anesthesia, pre-operative consultations, post-operative care, and any necessary follow-up appointments. The total expense may also vary based on individual factors such as the complexity of the procedure and geographic location.

Eyelid Surgery Recovery

After your eyelid surgery, you will have bandages on your eyes for several days. Most patients feel comfortable returning to work or their usual activities in approximately 10-14 days. Our team will provide a detailed timeline and clear aftercare instructions that specify which activities you’ll want to avoid during the recovery process. We will schedule follow-up appointments that help us ensure you’re healing as expected. For most patients, swelling subsides after about two to three weeks.
